Rating: 4 Diamonds, Gold Medal Seller
Quality: 4.9

Remember the time when Instagram was flooded with girls wearing these multi-coloured Andy Warhol type pop-art bikinis? It really all started with Australian brand Triangl Bikini.

We’re not 100% sure if this is the real thing (though it claims to be), but reviews are good all around, and the bikinis cost 20 – 30% cheaper than what you’d have to fork out at the official Triangl stores. If you change bikinis like Taylor Swift changes beaus, then why not give it a try?
